About the restaurant Le Socrate

ESPRIT CANAILLE - Il y a une atmosphère de bouchon lyonnais dans ce vieux bistrot tout proche de Plainpalais et du boulevard des Philosophes ! Déco rétro et objets anciens aux murs, sol en damier et petites tables en bois : Le Socrate est un bon troquet comme on les aime.

SAVEURS D'ANTAN - À vous les petits plats fait maison à la Française ! Terrine de la grand-mère Angèle ou os à moelle à la fleur de sel, joue de bœuf braisée, souris d'agneau confite au thym frais et fondant au chocolat, vous ferez le plein d’authenticité.

BY GAULT MILLAU - Recommandé par le célèbre guide, voici un joli recoin de Genève où l’on vient aussi pour déguster un bon verre de vin…

Best lamb shank (souris d'agneau) in Geneva - better even than Lipp! Great food all round. Excellent and friendly service. All in all, super restaurant.

We had a great night. The food was excellent; exactly the traditional french cuisine we were looking for. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the ambiance warm if a bit loud.

La cuisine est excellente : plats savoureux et bien présentés, desserts très fins.
Le service est agréable et sympathique.
Le seul bémol est peut-être que le petit espace est très bruyant quand c'est plein

Cuisine médiocre... plat contenant des ingrédients pas spécifiés sur la carte, tartare servie complètement congelé et j'en passe. Le serveur qui a repris norte table suite aux différents quiprocos est resté très professionnel! Bravo à lui d'avoir assumé ce que, ni sont premier collègue ni le cuisinier ont voulu ou ont osé assumer!!!

Super resto, je recommande! Seul hic, le serveur a imposé une boisson à mon ami car c'était soi-disant dans les conditions. J'ai vérifié et ça n'était pas le cas.

Enjoyed our dinner last night at Le Socrate, a Bistro-style restaurant with good quality traditional food, especially for meat lovers. The welcome was friendly, the wines that we were advised to have a perfect match with the dishes.

Excellent restaurant, nous avons testés de nouveaux plats, la dernière fois souris d'agneau un régal, cette fois-ci le tartare de bœuf, parfait. Le service est attentionné et les conseils avisés. Merci.
